I'm suspicious of a failing fuel pump. Safely check your fuel pressure

It should start for a bit if spraying quick start,but it does not.I relpaced the sending unit last summer and the fuel pump tested fine.Now i'am thinking a possible short in the throttle body injectors or wiring or that the starter itself not turning the engine fast enough. Thank You.
